You may or may not have noticed, but I was pretty absent from this blog a lot more than usual last month... I intentionally took a mini hiatus at the beginning of the month, but afterwards I got kind of sick and ended up spending several days dozing off to crappy TV instead of writing. Oops? Life goes on. Anyway, that brings me to this week's questions:
What's your favorite "guilty pleasure" TV show? The one you love watching, but don't necessarily brag about to others.
Let me say this first: I think the term "guilty pleasure" is sort of funny, because I never feel guilty about watching shitty TV. But when I meet someone new I'm not necessarily going to lead with the fact that I watched every single episode of Big Brother 9 UK, you know? (And what a productive summer that was!) Anyway, while I was out of commission in August I discovered that many, many seasons of The Real Housewives franchise are on Hulu. Not sure if they've been on there for a while or what, but I hadn't seen any of them before so down that rabbithole I went. (I may or may not be half-listening to an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as I write this.) Crappy TV really is the best when you're sick or distracted: Zone out for a while and you probably haven't missed too much.
OK, now that I've shared my current favorite form of mindrot—what's yours?
